Trade Facilitation Committee

16 May 2017

WTO Members gathered on 16 May 2017 for the inaugural meeting of the Committee on Trade Facilitation, the body responsible for overseeing implementation of the WTO’s historic Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA).

At the inaugural meeting, Members elected Ambassador Daniel Blockert (Sweden) as chair of the Committee.  The chair said there were a few procedural matters to settle before the new committee could undertake its assigned tasks, and that he would be consulting with Members before reconvening the Committee with the goal of adopting an agreed framework.

The committee will develop procedures for the sharing of relevant information and best practices among members. After four years, the committee will review the operation and implementation of the TFA.
